  2. Mentorship Programs:

    • Mentorship Matchmaking: Develop programs that pair women with mentors who can guide them through their career paths, provide advice, and offer support.
    • Reverse Mentoring: Implement programs where younger women mentor more experienced professionals to foster mutual learning and understanding.
  3. Skill Development:

    • Educational Workshops: Offer workshops on leadership, negotiation, public speaking, and other essential skills.
